Re: Being Retired

I'm still at that stage where I can't quite imagine what I'd do if retiring, but you are fast removing that impediment! Put simply you run out of time to do everything you have planned. I'm totally amazed at how fast the days are going. Today we got up, tidied the boat a bit - I cleaned around the ...

Being Retired

Is there anything better than a Sunday night meal in the Colintraive Hotel then back to the boat for cheese and biscuits and coffee with the heating on. Not a cloud in the sky and temperature dropping quickly.

Re: BT

Good to hear you've been successful - 130bhp* seems rather fast to me. We've been 'promised' 50-55 bhp which is way better than the 1.75 bhp that we actually got on the old system......

I've been through both ways. To the north of the Rock and also to the south - just for interests sake, you understand :nod:

Crinan Canal

I see the canal is closed. I'm assuming too much water from yesterday's rainfall. We came round the Mull yesterday. Man in Campbeltown looks happy!

Re: BT

Just had a pleasant conversation with a young chap from BT. He has promised to put us on the queue list to get our email back. Apparently a very long list. They're not admitting it per se but but emails have been hacked. "It'll be about 2-3 days for your call back, sir" Hmm. We'll see. Don...
